Could be a temporary failure.

Check actual ntpd status with    ntpq -p

In alternative you could use "generic" ntp public pool:

server 0.pool.ntp.org
server 1.pool.ntp.org
server 2.pool.ntp.org
server 3.pool.ntp.org

Or your local ntp public pool: go to http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/ choose your
geographic area from the table on top right of the page then your coutry.

For instance, United States server pool configuration is

server 0.us.pool.ntp.org
server 1.us.pool.ntp.org
server 2.us.pool.ntp.org
server 3.us.pool.ntp.org
